Despite its title, Grown Ups proves that boys never actually grow up. Though the plot of this unsophisticated comedy does not go much deeper than that, the movie is good for several laughs, and the cast is an embarrassment of riches. Add a lake house during the Fourth of July Holiday, throw in a raucous trip to a water park, and a ticket to Grown Ups brings a nice bit of summer fun. Five friends from elementary school former members of a winning basketball team gather in midlife for the funeral of their beloved coach. Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James and Rob Schneider endlessly exchange one-liners, flatulence jokes, pratfalls, and body blows. Their wives also join in the fun Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph and Joyce Van Patten, along with a gaggle of children. Hayek plays a successful fashion designer, and her children with Sandler, a Hollywood agent, order Voss water at the local diner and communicate with their nanny via text messages.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
